Football returns 15th April
I am pleased to say the weekly Men's football sessions will recommence at the Manor on Thursday 15th April.
The COVID restrictions issued by the FA for organised team sports will still apply as they did before Christmas so you will need to ensure you have read the conditions and completed the self declaration form before you can play.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions and see you on the 15th.

FOOTBALL V HOMOPHOBIA FIFA 21 CUP
We, in partnership with Sussex FA, BN1 Gaming and Football.v.Homophobia are running a FIFA 21 Tournament on PlayStation, Xbox and PC on Saturday 27 February 2021 at 11am.
However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are taking this year’s activities online. We’re also inviting the rest of the county to join us; players, coaches and volunteers at all our grassroots clubs at Sussex will be able to enter to represent their club whilst football remains suspended.
All matches in the knockout tournament will take place on Saturday 27 February. There will be separate tournaments for each console (PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series X and PC). Entrants will be required to make an account on Challengermode, which will be used to create the tournament draw and will provide a safe and secure platform for players to arrange to play each other.
